Last Free Alpha Test: Happy landings

This is our last Free Alpha test before the big day. No, we’re not getting married, but we are excitedly nervous. This test will last for 24 hours so it’s going to be intense. We’ve been working hard since the last test, implementing new ideas and smoothing out the game-play experience for you. But once again we need you to help us find out if it works and help inform us on how we move forward.
